Soils of Undulating Mid Slopes

1. Undulating mid soils occur on sleepy to gently sloping undulating to hilly landscape. The soils are very deep, dark brown to dark red, sandy loam to clay loam on the surface and loam to clay loam and at places gravelly sandy clay in the sub-surface horizon, with distinct argillic (clay rich) horizon. 2. These are neutral to weakly acidic in reaction, low in CEC, base saturation and medium to high in water holding capacity. 3. These soils are classified under the orders Alfisols and Ul

Soils of Upper Slopes

1. Upper slope soils are usually situated on convex ridges and steep side slopes. The soils are shallow to moderately deep, light grey, yellowish red and strong brown gravelly sandy loam to sandy loam soils. 2. They are normal to weakly acidic in reaction and low in CEC, base saturation and water holding capacity. These soils are classified under the orders Entisols and inceptisols with sub-orders Orthents and Ochrepts. 3. The soils have low fertility status with shallow rooting depth an

1. These soils usually occur on gently undulating plain or complex geological material comprising of gneisses. This type of soil occupies areas in parts of Bijapur, Dharwad, Belgaum, Raichur, Bellary and Chitradurga districts.

2. Usually red soils resemble the red sandy soils of midland region in physicchemical properties and black soils resemble the medium and deep black soils in physicchemical characteristics.

Low Lands Soils of Red Sandy Soils in Karnataka

1. Low lands soils of red sandy soils are partially deposited soils occurring on very gentle slope to nearly level or flat valley bottom areas, are deep to very deep, dark brown to very dark brown, sandy loam sandy clay loamand occasionally clay loam soils on the surface and sandy clay loam to clayey soils in the sub-surface horizons. 2. They are neutral to weakly alkaline, noncalcarious to calcarious and have medium to high cation exchange capacity and base saturation. 3. The water ho
